HeiQ is a three-in-one company: scientific research, specialty materials manufacturing and consumer ingredient branding, all working together to improve the lives of billions of people by perfecting the everyday product of textile.
The COVID-19 pandemic has increased demand from retailers and consumers for textiles treated with antiviral and antibacterial protection. HeiQ Viroblock NPJ03 is an intelligent Swiss textile technology that is tested effective against SARS-CoV-2 and many other viruses. HeiQ Viroblock is designed for a wide range of applications including apparel, home textiles, medical nonwovens and mattresses. This breakthrough combination of HeiQ’s combination of advanced silver and vesicle technology rapidly destroys the virus. ADM also saw the need for this type of protection and partnered with HeiQ to launch their “Safe to Touch”, or STT, denim and face mask collection for its global retail customers and through its affiliate brands, DL1961, Warp + Weft and Truemask.com.
ADM’s “Safe To Touch” collections treated with HeiQ Viroblock NPJ03 will be available online from July 2020.
“COVID-19 has reset the world. This means we have to change how we live our lives. How our clothes protect us will be a key decision in what we buy and wear, and we are happy to introduce various products treated with HeiQ Viroblock NPJ03” says Faisal Ahmed, CEO of ADM.
“The team at HeiQ is proud to collaborate with ADM to treat their products with HeiQ Viroblock NPJ03 and help consumers feel more comfortable as they move back into public settings” says Hoi Kwan Lam, HeiQ Group CMO.
